Computer Girl

I left my desk for 2 minutes to go to the door and hand something to Tony. This is what I came back to.....

Tressie in Grandma's chair, wearing Grandma's glasses apparently typing on Grandma's computer!

The glasses make her look even more like a mini Justin!

Merry Christmas

Some of my favorite Christmas songs are the most simple ones.

Away in a manger no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head,
The stars in the night sky looked down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

Oh come let us adore Him,
Oh come let us adore Him,
Oh come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour!

Christmas Advent Calendar

One of my childhood Christmas memories was having an advent calendar to open every day in December. I bought them for Emily when she was growing up too. So, one of the things I got on Black Friday was an advent calendar for Tressie.

You can see by the picture that I didn't spend alot of money on this particular calendar. I want her to be able to participate and hold it. She doesn't necessarily get to carry it around and play with it. I do know what would happen to it then! Anyway, beginning yesterday morning we will open a window every morning after she eats her breakfast. We will open several on some days to make up for the mornings that she is not here.

She does really seem to get excited about it! The only thing is, she doesn't want me to put it up after we are done! That's OK, Grandma has come up with a plan for that. Last year I bought her a Little People nativity set. When we are finished with the calendar, we come in the playroom and play awhile with her little nativity set. Well, it worked today. Might have to come up with a plan B or plan C, but for now, we will go with it!

Will try to post pictures of her playing with the nativity set soon!

Santa's Early Delivery

Tuesday we received an early delivery from Santa. I guess his reindeer aren't up and running yet, as this delivery came by way of the UPS truck!

Our new sleep number bed! Now, we are not new to the sleep number bed. We have had a queen size sleep number bed for about 7 years now. What makes this one so special is that it is a KING size bed! I have been wanting a king size bed for alot of years now. After building the new house last year, we finally had the room.

It's hard to believe that everything we needed was in these few boxes!

Today was COLD and windy. We had a few snow flurries blow thru. What better day to spend inside putting up the new bed.

Let's not forget the awesome little helper we had!

Grandpa I think it needs to go like this....

After several hours, a lunch break, Grandpa taking a nap and then Tressie taking a nap, we were finally done!

The final result! Thank goodness for a 30% off coupon on top of a great sale at Kohl's. Since we had never had a king size bed it required buying all new bedding!

Am looking forward to a great night's sleep tonight!
